Have you tried the paperbag short trend yet? I was hesitant about it at first, but have since added several pair to my summer wardrobe! I love that they can be styled a lot of ways, from super casual to dressed up for date night. I find them to be flattering and comfortable, which is the most important!
This is how I’ve worn these shorts most often. I love that they add a little bit of refinement to a casual outfit with the light color and the bit of structure they have. This would also work with just a simple pocket tee or tank tucked in and a fun pendant necklace!
Paired with a pretty cami, these shorts can easily be dressed up a little bit for an evening out. You could swap the espadrilles for a pair of wedges or heeled sandals to make it even more fancy!
For this look, I took the casual option (with just a simple tee/tank) and dressed it up a little bit. Adding a kimono with some color and pattern and a pair of pointed toe mules make this outfit a little more interesting than just a tee and sneakers!
